Subject: You Can Say that You're the Giant?!
Listen to the Jack Straw....Bobby sings, you can say, you're the giant, from sea to shining sea...
never heard that before, or after....
Have fun, thanks for all the music!!!
Subject: FRANKLINS IS FUNNY!
Tonight I crossed the line.
Subject: New Years '79
If you find the 2nd night of the run, I remember that being the hottest show. They played a 3rd set this night, starting with Althea, but it was just weird. Minglewood in the 3rd set? C'mon, man! Anyway, I love 'em and I miss'em. Peace...
Subject: Huge find for me!!!
As for the boys performance, it is pretty damn solid. There are some minor vocal flubbs and messy playing here and there, but overall they are having fun and jamming just like I would have wanted it to be if I were there. You know Jerry is gonna be HOT all night long from his aggressive attack on the opening "Jack Straw." Whoa! It's just SICK! And all the boys join in the Jack Straw vocal after Jerry ignites the place on fire! "Franklin's Tower" is a breath of fresh air as Jerry paints musical landscapes in my head. Damn I was born about 18 years too late. Shit!
Subject: I agree...
Subject: Excellent Aud recording
As for the show, some vocal flubs notwithstanding, an all around excellent showing. Hard to believe winterland closed only a year prior. worth having.
